Police seeking Severn man, 18, regarded as `critically missing'

December 12, 2003|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

County police are searching for an 18-year-old Severn man employed at Office Movers in Jessup who is considered to be a "critically missing person."

Police said Nicholas David Tonic was last seen on Dec. 5 at 1700 Sea Pine Circle, where he lives with friends. Police said that about midnight, while his mother, Susan Tonic, was visiting the home, he told her he had to go out, but declined to say where he was going or why.

Susan Tonic reported her son missing Wednesday after residents of Fruitful Court, a townhouse community in Millersville, found Nicholas Tonic's abandoned vehicle.

Investigators declined to comment yesterday on the evidence found in the vehicle, but said their examination of Nicholas Tonic's Ford Escort led them to suspect an assault.

Nicholas Tonic is African-American, 6 feet 1 inch tall, weighs 190 pounds and has shoulder-length black hair, a mustache and a goatee. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a light brown suede jacket.

Anyone with information concerning Nicholas Tonic is asked to call county police at 410-222-6145 or the Homicide Unit at 410-222-3454.
